5/28/2017 Brandon McCarthy, LAD, P
McCarthy threw six scoreless innings in Sunday's 5-0 win over the Cubs before exiting due to a sore right knee. The right-hander yielded just two hits and a walk while striking out six before departing.

Analysis: This explains why he was removed after throwing only 79 pitches and the Dodgers holding a comfortable lead. McCarthy has been very good when able to take the mound this season, posting a 5-1 record and a 3.28 ERA in eight starts, but he missed time earlier this month with soreness in his non-throwing shoulder and has an extensive injury history that owners should be concerned about.
5/28/2017 Kolten Wong, StL, 2B
Wong was scratched from the lineup for Saturday's game at Colorado due to left elbow stiffness.

Analysis: Wong also missed time earlier in the week with the same injury, which could be affecting his performance at the plate. He's 2 for 10 over his last five games.
5/28/2017 Zack Wheeler, NYM, P
Wheeler was removed from Saturday's start at Pittsburgh after six innings due to a blister on his right hand. He wound up with a no-decision in the Mets' 10-inning loss after giving up three runs and striking out five.

Analysis: Wheeler had already thrown 94 pitches, so he was close to coming out regardless, though the issue could affect his availability for his next start. He's scheduled to face the Brewers on Thursday.
5/27/2017 Brad Peacock, Hou, P
The Astros will start Peacock on Monday against the Twins and move Mike Fiers into the bullpen. Manager A.J. Hinch said he isn't sure if he'll stick with this rotation past the Minnesota series.

Analysis: Peacock allowed one hit and struck out eight in 4 1/3 innings in his first start of the season while filling in for Dallas Keuchel when he was injured. He's 2-0 with an 0.87 ERA in 13 appearances this year.
5/27/2017 Adam Jones, Bal, CF
